Lemonade stand serves customers for a good cause

if the passport was processed over fifteen years ago, a new passport is required, and children under the age of 16 must have both parents present when filling out the paperwork. The library is not able to perform passport renewals. The process fees are put forth by the Department of State and people have the option of applying for either a passport card or passport book.

When kids set up their lemonade stands in the summer to cater to thirsty passerbys, they are happy just to come home with a few dollars for their efforts. For six-year-old Sean Griffin and his four-year-old brother Kyle, three hours in the sun serving up ice-cold lemonade, netted them a total of $6,437. It was the second year in a row that the lemonade stand on Cartwright Blvd. in Massapequa Park was set up to benefit the ‘Answer the Call’ foundation, for the families of fallen policeman and firefighters. “My husband, who is an NYPD officer, came up with the idea of setting this whole thing up to help this nonprofit organization, which is instrumental to families of fallen police officers and firefighters,” said Debi Griffin, mother of Sean and Kyle. She said that the kids set up the stand in front of their grandparents house, right off of Sunrise Highway last Friday, and that people came from all over to donate to the cause. “The boys stand out there for three hours, serving up lemonade, and they get such a thrill seeing police officers, ambulance workers, and townspeople coming over to their little stand.” Lemonade wasn’t the only thing being served as customers were treated to special Answer the Call bracelets and tattoos as well as being able to participate in a raffle for Mets tickets. The Answer the Call organization was put together by former baseball great Rusty Staub to help families of fallen NYPD, FDNY and PAPD heroes killed in the line of duty. Staub, who died earlier this year, worked tirelessly to provide funds for widows, widowers, and the children of these fallen heroes. Griffin said that her husband came up with the idea for the lemonade stand after watching former NYPD sergeant Paul Tuozzolo’s funeral coverage on the news in 2016. “His family has two boys the same ages as our sons,

Local library to offer passport services BY GARY SIMEONE

Obtaining a passport can be a difficult process, and now the Levittown Library has made it easier for individuals who want to apply for the necessary permits to travel abroad. Beginning last Monday, the Library is offering passport services to people on an appointment-only basis. “We are the first library in Nassau County to provide this kind of service,” said Trina Reed, director

of the Levittown Public Library. “Our staff has been trained by the Department of State in the application process.” She said that the process is open to both adults and children, and that people must provide proof of citizenship for an application to be accepted. “If it’s your first time applying for a passport, the library staff will work with you to sort out the process and make it easier for you .” Some of the guidelines include

Last chance to pay Town tax bill Town of Oyster Bay property owners who missed paying their 2018 General taxes by the August 10th deadline should know that they can still avoid additional interest and fees beyond the standard 2% late payment penalty, according to Tax Receiver Stefanich. Late payers should immediately contact the Receiver’s office at 6246400 if they did not receive a second notification with a delinquent tax bill. Payments postmarked after August 31st cannot be accepted since the collection warrant will have expired. Those payments must be sent to the Nassau County Treasurer at 1 West Street, Mineola, New York, 11501. Stefanich pointed out, “Failure to pay taxes before the collection warrant expires will result in a delinquent tax lien proceeding with the possibility

of the lien being sold next February. Continued failure to pay all taxes levied against the property will result in your loss of the property”. In September, the Nassau County Treasurer will be mailing notices to all property owners with taxes in arrears.  Receiver Stefanich advises homeowners who fall under those circumstances to contact the Nassau County Treasurer at 571-2090 to determine the amount in arrears.  They may also visit the Treasurer’s office at 1 West Street, Mineola. Receiver Stefanich noted, “I want to make sure that property taxpayers in Oyster Bay do not jeopardize their home ownership because they were unaware of the consequences of not responding to notices from the Town or County”.

Kevin Drucker, a 2018 graduate of Bethpage Senior High School, is the winner of the $5,000 Opioid Awareness Scholarship, sponsored by Siler & Ingber, LLP in partnership with Rabinowitz Charitable Foundation (RCF). Opioid deaths have been rising at epidemic proportions for the last two decades. More people died from an opiate overdose in Nassau and Suffolk counties in 2017 than ever before, with Suffolk County leading the state death toll with 600 fatalities last year. Hundreds of Long Island high school students opened their hearts for a chance to win this scholarship, sharing tragic and triumphant stories of how opioid abuse has affected their lives. In his essay, Drucker shared his struggles dealing with his estranged father, now deceased, who was addicted to opiates. Leaving the family in economic disarray, Kevin got a job at Shop Rite to help his mom while continuing to be the captain of his high school varsity hockey team while juggling academics. His goal is to one day start a

non-profit that helps those with substance abuse. “My hardships have allowed me to empathize with others just like my family, and I intend to use my struggles to aid me in helping encourage and motivate other victims to preserve through these types of difficult times,” he writes. He plans to use his scholarship to attend SUNY Buffalo State. “Kevin’s ability to overcome the challenges of family opioid abuse is inspiring,” says Ronald Ingber, partner at Siler & Ingber, LLP. “His strength and drive to push through childhood adversity makes him a deserving candidate for the Opioid Awareness Scholarship, and we look forward to seeing what amazing work he does in the future.” Michelle-Lee Rabinowitz, president of The Rabinowitz Charitable Foundation adds: “The Rabinowitz Charitable Foundation is proud to have aligned with Siler & Ingber, LLP to support Kevin Drucker in furthering his education and shedding light on this serious epidemic.”

Problem-solving, collaboration, and creativity are encompassed into one during the Levittown Public Schools’ brand new Middle School Robotics Camp at Wisdom Lane Middle School. Open to incoming sixth, seventh, and eighth-graders attending Jonas E. Salk Middle School and Wisdom Lane Middle School in the fall, the two-week summer enrichment program enables students to create their own working robots while learning to code. Campers rotate to different sessions throughout the day which include VEX and Edison Robotics. In VEX, students are transformed into innovators through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) building activities. Putting their problem-solving skills to the test, campers engage in an electronic learning project called “Catch the Bug,” create and design their own electric race car, and design, build, and code a VEX Robot. In Edison, the campers continue to learn about robotics and the coding that is involved through the Edison Robot. They build and write code for their robot, allowing it to complete a variety of tasks. The robot allows for three different progressive coding formats to meet the individual level of the user and functions include responding

to light and sound, line tracking and autonomous movement. At the conclusion of the program, the campers are able to take their robot kits home where they can continue to invent, build and program. “My favorite part about Robotics Camp is being able to build everything,” said incoming Jonas E. Salk Middle School sixth-grader Alyssa Wunsch. “I have a little robot at home, but I’ve never been able to do anything like this with it. I also learned that sometimes I can’t do all of it without help.” Sessions are taught by certified teachers from throughout the district and student volunteers from Division Avenue High School and MacArthur High School help assist with the program. They play a valuable role in working with the campers and rotate to the different sessions with them. With all their hard work, the students put in approximately 50 hours of community service through the program. In addition to the building and designing aspect of the program, campers also enjoy outdoor games on the back field where they can engage with their peers and embrace the warm weather.

Add health screenings to back-to-school checklist

As summer vacation winds down, thoughts turn from jaunts to the beach to readying for a new school year. To-do lists include many of the typical tasks that precede going back to the classroom, including shopping for new clothes, purchasing school supplies and finishing summer reading assignments. Another essential requirement parents must find time for is completing their children’s health screenings and immunizations so youngsters can return to school. Health screenings may include, but may not be limited to, routine physical exams, eye exams and dental cleanings. Each school district may have its own set of health requirements that must be met in order for children to attend school. Many schools require that children are up-to-date with all immunizations before they can begin a new school year. While the issue of vaccinations has inspired debate in recent years, parents should recognize that many schools will only exempt students from receiving certain vaccinations due to religious reasons. For a list of state vaccination requirements and possible exemptions for schools in the United States, visit www2a.cdc.gov/nip/ schoolsurv/schImmRqmt.asp. Students who have specific learning disabilities or medical conditions that require classroom modification should obtain recent documentation from any therapists or specialists prior to beginning a new

Schedule visits to the doctor, dentist and an eye doctor so your child is up-to-date upon the dawn of a new school year.

school year. Doing so facilitates the process of setting up procedures within the school while ensuring children have what they need to excel in the classroom. All parents may want to ask doctors to provide copies of medical and immunization records so that schools will have the most recent copies on file. Parents should schedule eye examinations well in advance of the first day of school so they have ample time to fill new prescriptions for youngsters before school begins. This ensures kids won’t be starting off on the wrong foot because of vision problems that could already have been addressed. Parents of adolescents or students on the verge of adolescence may want to address the subject of bodily changes before the school year begins anew. Address which changes can be expected, including the start of menstruation for girls. This will help children better understand what is happening when they witness changes in themselves and fellow classmates and give them a chance to receive accurate information rather than gossip from their peers. Keep in mind that health screenings conducted in advance of the school year may not preclude students from school-sponsored screenings. Schools may offer their own vision and hearing screenings and may take physical measurements to ensure students are growing on schedules in line with normal development.

Summer Tutorial Program prepares students for September

Incoming East Broadway fifth-grader Edward Michalowski practiced his math skills with the computer program iReady. A number of elementary and middle school students in the Levittown Public Schools received a head start on the 2018-19 school year with the district’s four-week Summer Tutorial Program held at Levittown Memorial Education Center. The program, now in its 19th year, supports students entering grades 2-6 with math and reading review/remediation. Students attended one of two morning sessions, while supervisors and teachers

Kristy Quinlan and Janet Jakubowski were instrumental in implementing and overseeing the program this summer. The students received instruction in a small group setting from highly qualified tutors while engaging in a curriculum that included reading, writing and math activities. For the first time this year, students also utilized the computer-based iReady program for additional practice and assessments in both reading and math.

Tutor Deanna Marcellino (left) worked with incoming fifth-graders Leila Calixto (right) and Phi Bach (middle) on geometry word problems. Throughout the program, students were encouraged to independently read books and select from a variety of writing activities to culminate their reading. An incentive program was established to help motivate students to read as many books as possible throughout the program. The student who read the most books at the end of the program was awarded a gift card. Each student’s progress was moni-

tored by their tutors and supervisors throughout the program using the iReady program. “Students showed great strides in developing their academic abilities and confidence,” said Quinlan. “Overall, the students in the Summer Tutorial Program enjoyed interacting with their peers and tutor.”

career pathways. Supervisor Saladino stated, “The Town of Oyster Bay and the Workforce Development Board are committed to bolstering local employment and connecting trained unemployed workers with employers. This new initiative will help unemployed workers acquire skills in the high demand fields of Medical Office Administration and Medical Billing.  I thank Hunter Business School for working with us to develop a program that helps put unemployed residents back to work.” The 600-hour Medical Office Administration program offers a blend of classroom and hands-on training. Students learn computer data entry of patient information, patient files, filing systems and records, and billing and coding. They also gain expertise in computerized accounting using QuickBooks. In addition to courses in management and computer applications, students learn anatomy and physiology, health care administration, electronic medical records, insurance theory, and insurance claims management. Participants are trained in how to navigate Medicare, how to respond to medical emergencies, and in understanding healthcare law (e.g., Health Insurance

Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, Occupational Safety and Health Act). The Medical Billing Specialist program is a 180-hour program that prepares students to obtain entry-level employment in medical billing and coding in hospitals, medical insurance companies, and physicians' offices. Students learn accounts receivable, insurance billing, patient statements, superbills, appointment scheduling, procedure history, posting payments, diagnosis history, hospital rounds record-keeping, and referring doctor information. Program graduates typically obtain entry-level employment as medical office specialists, medical file coordinators, medical billing specialists, and patient coordinators in hospitals, clinics, or physicians’ offices. This program is coordinated by the Workforce Development Board (WDB). The Town of Oyster Bay, Town of North Hempstead and City of Glen Cove are proud members of the WDB.  For more information on the program or WDB, please contact the Massapequa Career Center at (516) 797-4560 and business@ oysterbay-ny.gov.

Continued from page D1 individually but woven together in one fantastic itinerary: Newport, New Bedford, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket - destinations that offer wonder and interest and importance to the discovery, exploration and development of America as the towns you visit along the Danube. The voyage proves ideal for accommodating people who have physical limitations (not recommended for wheelchair-bound, though), ideal for a three-generation reunion of 13 family members coming together from Dallas

and Nashville to share this Yankee adventure; ideal for a couple where one is blind; ideal for a daughter traveling with her mother who walks with a cane; ideal for me and my brother who also has somewhat limited mobility. Indeed, the passengers come from as far as California, and as close as Boston; one couple had taken Blount’s cruise to Guatemala and Belize, another is on their third New England Islands cruise with Blount. The Grande Caribe is very accommodating for people with somewhat limited mobility (there are

even stair lifts for those who cannot do stairs) – and an itinerary that gives maximum amount of time to enjoy each port with minimal hassle, while allowing for passengers to be as active or as sedentary as they liked. It is unpretentious and comfortable, having everything you would need. Each of the New England destinations in this itinerary is a jewel, but can only be visited in this compressed amount of time by cruiseship – cutting out the point-to-point driving (traffic!), ferries, parking, packing/repacking, checking in/out. Rather, every minute of this trip is part of our voyage, our vacation experience. Significantly, all the sights we visit – the grand mansions, museums, historical sites – are accommodating for people who have difficulty climbing steps. (I’m seeing many more people using hiking sticks in place of canes or walkers to get around.) We sail in before breakfast, and in each port but Nantucket (where we use a launch service), we are at a dock so we can come and go as we please all day long. We depart in the night, so we have a full day to explore. The cruise line offers various shore excursions (island tours and such offered at very reasonable cost), and on some itineraries, has bikes or kayaks to rent. Our strategy is to take an island tour, then visit a couple of attractions. When one of us has enough and wants to relax, it is easy to return to the ship while the other continues to explore. Because of bad storms at sea, Captain Patrick Moynihan makes a command

decision to change around the itinerary, which otherwise would have gone first to Nantucket, which is 30 miles out to sea where there are 10-foot swells. He warns that it is possible we won’t be able to visit Nantucket at all. But we hold out hope. No one second-guesses his decision when safety of the ship is concerned and sits in rapt attention during the safety video before we depart that shows us what would happen in an emergency. (Also, each day the ship is “sanitized” and there are hand-sanitizing stations as well.) In the end, we spend an extra full day in Martha’s Vineyard (sensational) and make it to Nantucket on our last full day, but bypass Block Island. Blount’s specially designed small ships make this itinerary possible; these ships are nimble, even have a patented bow ramp (this is used in places like Belize and Guatemala) and a retractable pilot house (so they can go under bridges on the Erie Canal), both inventions of Luther Blount, who founded the company and was one of the innovators of “small ship cruising” more than 50 years ago, and can come close to shore. Jumping from island to island, port to port, we experience these places as they were intended – the sea is what made these destinations and made them powerhouses in the national and global economy. Tiny Nantucket, with a population in the thousands, was known the world over (I love the wall showing distance markers to points around the world); New Bedford sent out hundreds

of whaling ships, half of all that sailed, and had 10,000 men at sea. We embark in Warren, Rhode Island, which is home base for Blount and where they have been building ships and ferries since 1947. With the change in itinerary because of the weather, our voyage starts in Bristol, then Newport, New Bedford, Martha’s Vineyard (2 days), Nantucket, before sailing back to Warren RI. I have visited all these places in the past, but on this trip, I see them from such a different perspective, it is as if seeing them for the first time. The days pass so pleasantly: there is an early bird breakfast put out at 6:30 am (coffee and freshly baked goods), breakfast at 8 am. Touring and exploring. Lunch at 12:30 pm (if you want to return to the ship). 5:30 cocktails (it’s BYOB except for welcome and farewell cocktail parties with an open bar and delicious hors d’oeurves); 6:30 dinner; then an evening activity at 8:30 pm– a movie, live performance (we had a trio on one night and a Martha’s Vineyard native, folksinger Mark Alan Lovewell, doing sea chanties before we came to Nantucket), and one night when we played a rollicking game of “LCR” (everyone puts up three $1 bills, rolls dice, and at the end, whoever still has a bill, wins the pot). To be candid, many of the large cruise ships have such busy schedules that it always seems you are rushing

here to there; but on this ship, it felt much more relaxed, not hurried, but with enough to do (or as little as you wanted) that it was never boring. There are always interesting conversations going on, I hardly have any time to read my book. (There is a ship’s library and board games available.). Some itineraries also have guest lecturers and some offer photography workshops. The food on board is excellent and the menus, which reflect the region and use locally sourced comestibles, feature New England classics: a lobster bake with clams & mussels was a definite highlight; New England clam chowder; lobster bisque). The baked goods including fresh breads and scones, are outstanding. Three meals are provided daily. There are beverages and snacks available all day. Dietary restrictions are accommodated. We are encouraged to Bring Your Own Beverages aboard which we can put in a cooler or at a bar, and each evening there is a 5:30 cocktail hour when all the fixings are provided (house wine and beer are provided at no charge at lunch and dinner), but there is also a welcome aboard and farewell cocktail party with an open bar and delectable hors d’oeurves. The ship is modest, unpretentious, but is very comfortable, very clean and well maintained (it was refurbished

Betty White turns 80, and other fascinating facts BY MARJORIE GOTTLIEB WOLFE The Associated Press reports that Betty White of “The Golden Girls” turned 96. It’s her 80th year in show business and on Aug. 21, a special TV program will show White at work, at home and with friends. Mireille Silcoff wrote that there are two kinds of old these days: The baby-boomer old, which include couples sky-diving for their 40th anniversary… and the old old, the nursing-home old. This includes the prunes-for-breakfast old and the “I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up” old. Today we hear expressions like “Geezer Chic” and the “White phenomenon.” As we look forward to seeing, “Betty White: First Lady of Television,” let’s look back at her career.

Autobiography

In 2011, Betty White wrote her autobiography titled, “If You Ask Me (And of Course You Won’t).” On page 1, White says, “I can’t believe I’m getting old…However, if one is lucky enough to be blessed with good health, growing older shouldn’t be something to complain about…There is even a funny side to aging, if one has a warped sense of humor. If one has no sense of humor,

one is in trouble.”

Avid Animal Lover

White confessed [2014] that she’s a supporter of the Farm Animal Reform Movement and Friends of Animals group, as well as a Los Angeles Zoo board member. She has donated thousands of dollars to these causes. As an animal lover, she was horrified by the scene from “As Good As It Gets” where Jack Nicholson’s curmudgeonly anti-hero pitches a small dog down the trash chute of his apartment building.

Bond Girl

Rumor has it that Betty is reportedly set to play the Bond Girl in the next edition of “James Bond” franchise. She would be cast as the female lead opposite Daniel Craig. IF it were so, she would be the oldest Bond girl ever. [In a Feb. 8, 2018 update, this story seems to be false. Some fans even launched an online Facebook page called “We Want Betty White for Bond Girl.”]

Cheesecake fixes everything

It’s been said that over the course of the series, the Golden Girls ate more than 100 cheesecakes. Whenever one of the girls has a problem, they talk it over a whole cheesecake. And Rose has

been known to enjoy raw cookie dough. Haven’t we all?

I only go in the kitchen to feed my dog.”

Children

Betty explains that women who pair up with younger men are sometimes called “cougars.” She admits that all her life she preferred men older than she was. “Unfortunately, today I don’t think there IS anyone older than I am.”

Betty White had no children, but she is stepmother to Allen Ludden’s three children from his first marriage.

Commercials

White did a Snickers commercial to be run during the Super Bowl.

Controversial Topics

In “The Golden Girls” hit many controversial topics were addressed: AIDS, gay marriage, and teen pregnancy.

Conway, Tim

Betty says, “…I am such a pigeon for Tim Conway. I look at him and I can get hysterical. [In her autobiography] she writes: So Tim walks in, and he looks at Jeff [Witjas] and says, “Don’t get up,” and he looks at me without changing his inflection at all and says, “And I know you can’t.” Betty says that Tim Conway “is one of those people you have trouble making eye contact with for fear of cracking up.”

Cooking

White confesses that she’s not the homemaker type. “I’m not a big cook.

“Cougars”

Diet

Betty said [at age 74], “I don’t eat a proper diet. Lunch is usually a hot dog and French fries, or something equally devilish. Red whips are my curse.” Betty never paid much attention to fad diets. She said, “There was one where you ate nothing but grapefruit…I love grapefruit, but I also love other things. Things like vodka, which she drinks on the rocks with ”lots and lots of lemon.”

Dog

Betty White has a beloved labrador retriever named “Spinee.” The yellow lab recently (2018) underwent a risky procedure at the Washington Veterinary Hospital.

In January 2010 there was a campaign on Facebook called “Betty White See page D7

Is Social Security a Welfare Program? BY TOM MARGENAU

Q: Recently, I was listening to a radio program in which the host described Social Security as a welfare program. He said millions of people are getting benefits they never paid for and don’t deserve. I’d like to get your opinion on this. Is Social Security welfare? A: Well, I guess it all depends on how you define “welfare.” If you mean it in the narrow sense of someone getting free government benefits that they may never have paid for, then that certainly is not what Social Security is. But if you define “welfare” in broader terms as a government program designed to provide for the general good of its citizens, then I would definitely put Social Security in that category. After all, the word “social” in Social Security is there not just because it is alliterative and sounds good. From its very beginning in 1935, social goals were built into the program. For example, the Social Security benefit formula has always been skewed so that low-income workers get a better deal out of the program than their more highly paid counterparts. And that doesn’t mean higher benefits. A well-to-do person will always get much more in retirement benefits than a poorer retiree. But as a percentage of what they kicked into the system, the low-income person gets a more generous rate of return. In other words, raising the standard of living of lower-income retirees has always been a goal of Social Security. And it’s worked! The poverty rate among the elderly was pushing 60 percent when Social Security started. Today, it is less than 10 percent. Another social goal of Social Security has been to help keep families together after the breadwinner has died. And that’s why survivor benefits have been part of the program since its inception. For example, if a young husband and father dies, then his children will start getting monthly dependent child benefits on his record. And the mother may also get a monthly Social Security check if she is not working. I’m sure these are some of the people the radio host was referring to when he said, “Millions of people are getting benefits they never paid for and don’t deserve.” While it is true that the children, and possibly the wife, of the deceased father I mentioned in the prior paragraph didn’t pay for the survivor benefits they are receiving, the father certainly did. And only the most miserly and narrow-minded of government critics would say his widow and children don’t deserve the Social Security benefits they are receiving. There are also millions of elderly women who receive wife’s or widow’s benefits on a husband’s Social Security

account. Some of these women may never have worked outside the home and paid Social Security taxes. But once again, their husbands surely did. So are these women getting “welfare”? Well, in the broadest sense of that term, yes, they are. But in the narrow sense that they are getting something for nothing, they certainly are not getting welfare. I think a major reason many people think of Social Security benefits as “welfare” is because of confusion with the SSI program. Supplemental Security Income is indeed a welfare program that pays a small monthly stipend to the elderly poor and to poor people with disabilities. That program is managed by the Social Security Administration, but SSI payments are funded out of general tax revenues, not Social Security taxes. Still, most Americans don’t understand the distinction and they incorrectly think that SSI is just another Social Security welfare benefit. Q: I think we could save Social Security by getting rid of the welfare elements of the program. People getting real Social Security, like retirement benefits, are OK. But all those freeloaders getting disability and dependent’s benefits should be kicked off the program! A: To help illustrate how narrow-minded and wrong you are, let me give you some examples. Ann began working at age 21 and retired at age 62 and started collecting Social Security retirement benefits. So she paid into Social Security for 41 years. I take it this is what you call “real” Social Security, so she deserves her benefits. Frank also started working at age 21. But sadly, at age 59, he had severe heart problems and was forced to stop working. He applied for and started getting disability benefits when he was 60. He worked and paid Social Security taxes for 38 years. And yet you claim he is a freeloader who should be kicked off the system. Other than the fact that Ann worked until she retired and Frank was forced to stop working a few years prior to retirement, how are their cases different? What makes Ann’s benefits “real” and Frank’s benefits “welfare”? Here is a third example. Sam, like Frank and Ann, started working at age 21. He retired at age 66 and started getting Social Security. He died at age 80 and his widow, Sylvia, started getting an additional $200 per month in widow’s benefits added to her own retirement benefit. So you are saying that even though Sam worked and paid Social Security taxes for 45 years, the $200 per month that Sylvia now gets in widow’s benefits is “welfare.” I simply don’t follow your logic. Finally, let’s look at Barbara’s Social Security situation. She also started working at age 21. Tragically, she was

killed in a car accident when she was 50 years old. Her two minor children started getting survivor benefits on her account. Barbara paid Social Security taxes for 29 years. How can you call the survivor benefits her children get “welfare”? I can’t imagine any sensible person claiming that the benefits that Frank

or Sylvia or Barbara’s kids get are welfare. At least not in the sense that you view the term as a government freebie and giveaway. If you have a Social Security question, Tom Margenau has the answer. Contact him at thomas.margenau@comcast.net. COPYRIGHT 2018 CREATORS.COM

We can follow the ship’s progress on a navigational map on a big screen TV, like watching your plane’s route. The ship, with a capacity for 84 passengers, has Interesting people from all over the country – as far as California and Texas, Midwest (Illinois, Tennessee) and North Carolina, as well as New Jersey, Long Island, Boston. But this style of small-ship cruising, and this itinerary in particular is ideal for travelers from abroad to really see America in a compressed timeframe. The intimacy means you not only get immersed in the destination (versus the floating resort-style cruiseships where the ports are almost an afterthought), but with fellow passengers. Each evening we are told about the next day’s itinerary – when we sail, where we dock, how to get into town, when and where to go for the shore excursions. There are guides, maps, and various tourist literature laid out. The day’s schedule is posted. Much of this is repeated at breakfast, and Jasmine, the spry cruise director,

Blount Small Ship Adventures’ Grande Caribe Voyage to New England Islands C ontinued from page D3

Vineyard, to Block Island, to Bristol, RI, to Newport and back to Warren – is completely revamped because of the 10 foot seas we would have to sail through to reach Nantucket. Instead, we sail from Warren RI to Bristol to Newport, New Bedford, Martha’s Vineyard (where we stay two full days instead of one), to Nantucket and back to Warren RI.

after a short sail we pull into Bristol, Rhode Island (coming this way, I didn’t recognize this town which is at the end of the East Bay Bike Path from Providence that I have biked several times in the past). Just across from where we dock, there is a fascinating boat museum, the Herreshoff Marine Museum and America’s Cup Hall of Fame. It is a shrine to yacht racing and where eight consecutive America’s Cup defenders were built.

An evenings entertainment aboard Blount’s Grande Caribe: Martha’s Vineyard native, folksinger Mark Alan Lovewell, plays a 164-year old concertina and sings sea chanties, “the work songs of the whalers.” Sailing into Bristol On Sunday, after departing Warren,

The museum houses dozens of sailing yachts, some that you can climb

aboard. A local on the dock walking his dogs tells me that this boatyard is where many of the America’s Cup sailboats were designed and built in the 1930s by John Brown Herreshoff, who was blind, but would create these models based on feel. According to the museum, “In 1878, John Brown Herreshoff, a blind boatbuilder from Bristol, Rhode Island, who had been in business since 1863, went into partnership with his younger brother, Nathanael Greene Herreshoff, a naval architect and steam engineer. “Between 1893 and 1914, for the defense of the America’s Cup, Captain Nat designed and built seven of the largest, most complex and powerful racing sloops the world has ever known. Of these, five were selected to sail as defenders, and all five were victorious. The firm also launched many hundreds of custom designs, both large and small, and a number of one-design classes (among them Herreshoff J12’1/2- and 15-Footers, S boats, and New York 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s) that have never been bettered for all-around sailing excitement and pleasure.” (http:// www.herreshoff.org) He also directs me to Linden Place Museum , an 1810 Federalstyle mansion with a stunning spiral staircase and   Hollywood connections: stage and screen star Ethel Barrymore summered here (her movie memorabilia is on display), plus scenes from the 1974 version of “The Great Gatsby” were shot here, with the exterior used as Daisy Buchanan’s parents home. I walk into the town with the most marvelous

homes dating back to the early 1700s. There is also Blithewold Mansion, Gardens and Arboretum, located just outside of downtown, but I don’t make it that far when it starts to rain. I note the red-white-blue stripe down the center line of the main street: Bristol boasts the oldest Fourth of July celebration in the United States, held continuously since 1785, and it displays its patriotism year-round with the painted traffic lines, as well as flags and such on many of the houses. Luther’s Legacy The Blounts were in the oyster business for generations until the 1938 hurricane destroyed Rhode Island’s oyster beds. Luther Blount was in college at the time studying engineering, and realized he had to set a different course for his future. He moved back to Rhode Island, and promptly invented a way to steam clams that was so efficient, his brother Nelson’s company became the supplier for Campbell’s Soup’s Clam Chowder. By 1947, Luther had become the Vice President of E.B. Blount and Sons, and began building boats, beginning with an oyster boat.  By 1964, he had built over 100 vessels (including Circle Line boats that take tourists around the Statue of Liberty, and the ferries that one of our passengers from Long Island uses for his Fire Island ferry business). He even had a few patents to his name — patents that would one day become the signature of Blount Cruise ships. Over the course of 20 years, Blount would personally sail the globe to the ships he built. In 1966, Luther decided

that he wanted to show his friends and family the places he had been exploring and began building passenger boats. Soon he was offering these trips for others, coining the expression “small ship cruising”. “He created itineraries for explorers, for those who wanted to tread lightly, going beyond the usual tourist meccas finding experiences you can only have when you get to know a place through its people.” Meanwhile, Luther, who passed away in 2006, worked to bring the oysters back to Rhode Island, starting with Narragansett Bay. He donated to a local university, charging them with cultivating new oyster beds. He bought Prudence Island to be used as an oyster regeneration project funded by his foundation. Today, Luther’s daughter Nancy is at the helm as president of Blount

Small Ship Adventures; daughters Marcia and Julie are president and vice president of Blount Boats. The design of the Grande Caribe and its sister ship, Grande Mariner, enables Blount to bring travelers to places that larger ships simply cannot go. They explore remote islands and traverse scenic waterways like the Erie Canal and St. Lawrence Seaway. They dock where private yachts dock (in fact, our ship is about the same size as the more extravagant yachts). This style of cruising appeals to people who are curious, casual, adventurous, who appreciate the ship as transportation for the purpose of exploring destinations, learning about cultures and heritage and communities. The atmosphere is very casual, laidback, unpretentious, welcoming – as if you were sailing on a friend’s yacht. Interestingly, even though we visit

places that are literally overrun by tourists this season, we dock away from the crowds, and simply slip into the everyday pattern – hopping a local bus, for example at Vineyard Haven to Oak Bluffs or a local beach. The threegenerations family of 13 split off for different activities – cousins going one direction – pooling photos on an online album. Blount Small Ship Adventures offers overnight small ship cruises in the United States, Canada, Central America, Caribbean and Cuba, with itineraries ranging from 7 to 16 days.

Betty White turns 80, and other fascinating facts C ontinued from page D3 to Host SNL (Please). By March, almost half a million people had voted. “It was a terrifying proposition,” she wrote. White was forced to use cue cards, and make complete costume changes for each sketch, which must be done in one minute, 30 seconds. SNL brought her her 7th Emmy Award.

Golden Girls

White is perhaps best known for her role as the hapless Rose Nylund on “Golden Girls.” She is the only living “Golden Girl.” Estelle Getty died in 2008; Bea Arthur died in 2009; and Rue McClanahan died in 2010. White wrote, “I always thought I would be the one who would go—particularly with the Golden Girls, because I was the oldest…I’m the only one left and I’m still functioning. I think, How did that happen?”

Hoax

News of Betty White’s death spread quickly in July of 2018 causing concern among fans across the world. It was a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Facebook page attracted nearly one million of “likes.” Hundreds of fans immediately started writing messages of condolences. Twitterphere was frenzied over the death hoax.

Hollywood Wall of Fame

White and Allen Ludden have stars on the Hollywood Wall of Fame—sideby-side.

Honorary Mayor

In 1955, Betty was the honorary Mayor of Hollywood, California. Betty

Hot in Cleveland

played

the

wisecracking

caretaker, Elka Ostrovsky on “Hot in Cleveland.” At the Screen Actors Guild Awards in 2011, she was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series, and won! She writes, “When I picked up the SAG statue itself,…it felt like it weighed twenty-five pounds. All I could think about was that it was the heaviest award I’d ever held.” Betty also wrote that when her name was announced her first thought was, “They read the wrong name.”

Marriages

White was married three times: Dick Barker, Lane Allen, and Allen Ludden. She told Katie Couric [in 2018] that Ludden was “The love of my life.”

Miami

“The Golden Girls” shared a Miami home. The layout of the home changed, but there were always great jokes, great friends, a spacious lanai, and cheesecake in the refrigerator.

Net Worth

[as of 2017], White has amassed an estimated net worth of $45 million.

New friend vs. Old friend

White says that “With a new friend, you start to tell an anecdote and there’s a whole explanation that needs to go with it so they’ll understand.” She continues, “But with old friends, you don’t have to do the backstory, because you talk so often that they know what’s going on in your life—or maybe they were there at the time.”

Nicknames

White was given these nicknames: Grand Dame of Television, and Queen of Television.

Optimist (quote)

“I’m a big cockeyed optimist. I try

to accentuate the positive as opposed to the negative.”

Password

White, who was a regular on the game show circuit, met her match in 1961 when she was a celebrity guest on Password. Host, Allen Ludden, subsequently proposed with an engagement ring and was turned down. He wore the ring around his neck until she changed her mind.

Poker

White loves to play poker. She says, “We don’t play for big money, but we play for blood.”

Queen Mum

The Queen Mum was a huge fan of “The Golden Girls.” Sir Laurence Olivier was also a fan.

Red Carpet Events

White wrote that if there’s one thing she doesn’t like, its red-carpet events. They can be a nightmare when you’re greeted by a line of photographers and microphone-wielding TV reporters shouting “Betty” or “Mrs. Ludden.” With all the glaring lights and noise, you can stagger and look like you’ve had a few drinks. White says, “It’s a necessary evil…it’s a hazard that one just has to get over.”

Retirement (quote)

“Why retire from something if you’re loving it so much and enjoying it so much, and you’re blessed with another group of people to work with like the gang on ‘Hot in Cleveland?’ Why would I think of retiring? What would I do with myself?”

Robert Redford

White gave this cheeky confession: “My answer to anything under the sun, like ‘What have you not done in the

business that you’ve always wanted to do?’ is ‘Robert Redford.’” [White has never worked with Redford, who is 14 years her junior.] Her crush on him soon grew into genuine admiration.

Thanksgiving Parade

From 1962 to 1971, White hosted NBC’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade alongside Bonanza’s, Lorne Greene.

Theme Song

The theme song, “Thank You for Being a Friend” was originally written and recorded by Andrew Gold. For the show, Cynthia Fee sang.

Word Games

White would play word games with equally competitive McClanahan between takes.

Young (quote)

“Don’t try to be young. Just open your mind. Stay interested in stuff. There are so many things won’t live to find out about, but I’m still curious about them. You know people who are already saying, ‘I’m going to be 30 - Oh. What am I going to do?’ Well, use that decade. Use them all!” MARJORIE WOLFE can relate to this quote by Betty White: “I have a two-story house and a bad memory, so I’m up and down those stairs all the time. That’s my exercise.” Sources: “If You Ask Me (And of Course You Won’t) by Betty White “No, for Real, Ask Your Grandpa: Can I Have His Hand-Me-Downs?” by Mireille Silcoff, The New York Times Magazine, Aug. 28, 2013

Local library to offer passport services From page 1

The fees for a passport card are $90 for an adult and $15 for a child. For a passport book, the cost is $170 for an adult and $80 for a child. Both options include a $35 acceptance fee for the Library. Reed said that the benefit of applying for a passport at the library instead of town hall or the post office is overall convenience. “Our appointment schedule is from Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.,” said Reed.

In a ceremony last Saturday, to welcome the new service, Hempstead Town Councilman Dennis Dunne spoke about benefits of being able to obtain a passport at the library. “This is going to do two things: streamline the process and make it easier for our residents to be able to conveniently get what they keep putting off because of the horror stories,” said Dunne. More information on the process and a link to their brochure can be found on the library website, www.levittownpl. org.

Anne DiPrima, a pioneer for interscholastic sports in the district since 1970 “The Three Amigos”: Thomas Cilmi, Frank DeCicco and Vincent Valenti were inducted into the Bethpage School District Athletic Wall of Fame in recognition of their dedication to the Bethpage High School football team. A new cohort of distinguished individuals was inducted into the Bethpage School District Athletic Wall of Fame during a July 22nd ceremony on Bethpage High School’s football field. This year’s group of honorees, who were the fifth to be inducted, included Anne DiPrima; “The Three Amigos” Thomas Cilmi, Frank DeCicco and Vincent Valenti; and the 1971 men’s high school track team. DiPrima earned her place on the honorary wall as a pioneer for interscholastic sports at the middle school and high school levels since joining the district in 1970 as a teacher and coach. As the high school softball coach, she won 406 games in 34 seasons before retiring from the helm in 2014. As the current high school volleyball coach, she has accumulated 594 victories, the most in Nassau County history. Dubbed “The Three Amigos,” Cilmi, DeCicco, and Valenti exemplify the meaning of a Golden Eagle as strong supporters of the high school football team. The trio received their nickname during the 1970s by the high school football coaching staff for their dedication

to the program and their attendance at every game, home and away. The three supporters have 22 children and grandchildren altogether who have attended district schools. The men’s high school track team of 1971 was named the top team in the state by the New York State Scholastic Track Association after going undefeated and winning the North Shore Championship. The group edged out Mount Vernon, Boys, and Archbishop Molloy High Schools in the closest decision in the history of state track selections. The Fred Meder-coached team also won the Mid Island Meet and the prestigious Eddy Meet during the 1971 season. Among the speakers at the event were current Superintendent of Schools David Schneider and recently retired Superintendent Terrence Clark, who served as master of ceremonies. Schneider concluded the ceremony with a presentation of a plaque to Clark from the athletic department for his support and dedication.

Salk MS students ready for the future Jonas E. Salk Middle School eighth graders are now ready to take on the academic challenges of high school. More than 300 students were poised to start this new chapter as they participated in the school’s annual moving-up ceremony, held in the gymnasium on June 8. After a salute to the flag led by Matthew Papach and the eighth-grade chorus’ singing of the national anthem, under the direction of Lisa Levenberg, words of congratulations and wisdom were dispensed by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Tonie McDonald, who encouraged the students to get involved in high school. “The responsibility for your education will be yours, so grab it,” she said.

Principal John Zampaglione told the graduates they are prepared to meet the challenges in high school. “Listen to your inner voice to decide what is right for you,” he said. Prior to the distribution of moving-up certificates, academic awards and other special awards were presented. The students then walked across the stage to shake hands with members of the board of education, central administrators, faculty, and local government representatives, symbolizing their entrance into high school. The students then joined the eighth-grade chorus for the last time, led by Cassidy Balthazar, to sing Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Look Back.”
